This is the fourth in the Augusta and Christina series: oddly it’s set in the 1980s, thirty years after the original series was set, but the two heroines are still teenagers. Both sets of parents have gone away, leaving Mignon the French au-pair to look after them, but she leaves. They find Nico and his pony Rainbow. Nico is distraught as his father is threatening to sell the unschooled Rainbow so Augusta and Christina offer to help.
